Strain description

SIK2-KO mice are knockout mice of SIK2, a protein kinase which belong to AMP dependent protein kinase (AMPK) family. Salt Inducible Kinase (SIK) is isolated from adrenal gland of rat fed high salt containing food as a factor about control of aldosterone synthesis. It has three isoforms, SIK1, SIK2, SIK3. This strain is available for research of carbohydrate or liqid metabolism because SIK2 expresses highly in adipocytes and it's suggested that SIK2 participates with insulin signal transduction.
